Hockey is really boring, i try and watch every once in a while when no other good sport is on and i just cant do it. Hockey is just so **** boring it puts me to sleep. Yes they have a few goals here and there, and maybe a good hit or a fight but that even cant make me watch that sport. Maybe its because im from California and its not played much out here but oi just cant watch, just cant do it.

Okay Sparky, I'll take the field.
Just b/c hockey may be boring to you, it is no where near the most boring of the major sports. I think you should stop smoking that herb you have so prominently displayed in your pictures. You probably don't like hockey b/c you're too high to keep up with what's going on.
Hockey is the fastest of all the sports and has non stop, end to end action. Hell, just blink and you could miss a goal or a fierce body check. They can go 5 to 10 minutes without a break in the action and it's the only major sport with fights that include actual punches.
Baseball? Blink and you may miss the ever exciting throw over to first base or a pitch out or a player scratching his balls. Don't forget the multiple pitching changes throughout the game and the thrilling conferences at the mound. Whoooo! I might need to take a rest. MLB has made rule changes to speed up the game b/c it was taking too long! Now that's boring.
As has been said several times by many people, "you only need to watch the last 2 minutes of a basketball game." Why? Cause that's all that matters. It sure is exciting watching guys walk or jog up and down the court.
More to come.

I would have to be high to watch Hockey. There is a reason a few people watch hockey in the U.S. its because its BORING. You think Hockey franchises are going bankrupt on accident? I can see being a sports fan why people would like it, but out of the four sports its gotta be the worst. Baseball is not called the national pastime for no reason, yes baseball is played at a slow pace but thats the beauty of it. Millions of people go to the games, and even more millions watch on T.V. Hockey cant say that.

"I would have to be high to watch Hockey"
And the rest of us have to be high to read your arguments. You have yet to say why hockey is allegedly boring other than the fact you don't like it. And everybody knows, opinions are like arseholes.....
"yes baseball is played at a slow pace but thats the beauty of it."
One man's beauty is another man's boring...you probably think the missionary position every time is exciting too. Is that the catcher going to the mound AGAIN? Look! The pitcher stepped off the rubber, now THAT'S exciting! Another foul ball, WOW!
"Millions of people go to the games, and even more millions watch on T.V. Hockey cant say that."
Okay Stonerboy, put down the Fritos and HoHos and stop making things up.
"Baseball is not called the national pastime for no reason"
And American Idol is the # 1 TV show. The only thing that shows is that people are stupid.
Hockey is a blend of speed, skill, grace, grit, aggression and determination. I'm sorry if non stop action is boring to you.
Plus, hockey players aren't all hopped up on steroids, unlike the hundreds of cheaters in baseball.

Judging by your TD record, that scintillating 3rd argument and the score of this TD, something certainly SUCKS around here and it is most definitely not hockey.
Care to hazard a guess as to what I'm referring to?
I'm almost surprised that you didn't resort to a "your mother" comment to finish things off. You know, nothing screams lack of intelligence like a parting shot insult. You might want to check your knuckles, they must be pretty scarred from dragging them on the ground so much.
I could go on busting your balls all day long, but I think the 90 vote beatdown to this point has done my work for me.
Light up another one Sparky, I can't wait to see what you come up with next.
